Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has reacted to International Cricket Council’s (ICC) brutal trolling of him as the Rawalpindi Express took to social media platform Twitter to slam the world governing body for throwing neutrality out of the window.
A few days back, ICC had posted a few photographs indicating at battle of past and present and it had Akhtar facing off against Australian maestro Steve Smith to which the former Pakistan cricketer said it would take him minutes to dismiss Smith as he would bowl three hurting bouncers before dismissing the swashbuckling Aussie batsman in the fourth delivery.
"Even today, 3 hurting bouncers and I can dismiss @stevesmith49 on the 4th ball. Lol," Akhtar had tweeted.
While fans made a mockery of Akhtar for his overconfidence or sarcasm, ICC took a hilarious jibe at the Rawalpindi Express.
Reverting to ICC’s trolling, Akhtar wrote: “A symbolic tweet, how ICC has thrown neutrality out of the window. Basically this is how the state of affairs are run there :)”

Akhtar has been pretty vocal about all things related to cricket and has been active on social media platforms to share his views. While most of his videos are linked to Indian cricket in some way or another, Akhtar is also a big critic of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and how cricket is being managed in Pakistan.
The former speedster is facing a legal lawsuit for his comments against PCB’s legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi after Akhtar slammed the lawyer for his ‘incompetency’. Akhtar had slammed the defamation notice by claiming it was legally faulty.
